Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ants have invaded Act 3! Giant Mechanical Ants that is! And they could be yours via the premium items of Act 3. Now I know you may be trying to decide if these buggers are worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Decoration: Mechanical Ants (Alpha, Beta, Gamma & Delta)
Donut Price: 60 Donuts
Bonus %: 0.75% bonus on all cash and xp for each Ant
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Obedience +10 each
The Ants Leave Stores on September 15th..
-Unlocks a permanent 10hr task for Bart (even just buying 1 Ant unlocks the task)
-Cool animation when on task associated with them (see below)
-Pricey for what they are an the fact hat they only offer a .75% bonus
-Not animated unless Bart’s on the task
These are one of those if you want em get em kind of items. There’s no real practical reason to get the Ants, other than you think they look cool and you want them. It is nice to add the 10hr task for Bart, but the bonus % is pretty weak for 60 donuts (in comparison you can get a 2% bonus for the 35 donuts on the Jet Engine Bike). So if you think they’re cool…pick them up. But from a practical standpoint, pass.
My freemium friends…avoid these guys. You may think they’re cool, but they’re really not worth the donuts. Complete freemium pass in my opinion. Save your donuts for something better down the line….
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do, and personally this is a pass for me. However, this IS a limited-time item. So if you’re thinking about getting it make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games (September 15th).
And now for those of you curious…here’s a look at the dialogue that pops up when you purchase an Ant:
Bart: Oh man! Normally ants are small and un-mechanical. But not these!
Make Bart Command Mechanical Ants- 10hrs, Earns $350, 90xp
At this point you’ll see Bart controlling them from outside Springfield Elementary (the Ants will appear on the roof)
Bart: Sometimes you get something you’ve always wanted and worry it can’t possibly live up to expectations. …this is not one of those times.
This will add a permanent 10hr task for Bart.
The more ants you purchase the more will appear on the roof of the school with the task.
What are your thoughts on the Ants? Did you make the purchase? How many have you picked up? Do you enjoy Bart’s task? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
